Woman faces criminal charges in Virginia for alleged fraud scheme

When a person is accused of deceiving a person or entity for their own personal gain, they may face fraud charges. A Virginia woman was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud for her role in a $5 million fraud scheme. The woman apparently told multiple alleged victims that she needed money to pay for healthcare software, supposedly bought out of escrow in Austria. Prosecutors say the woman used the money to buy luxury items and travel. She is accused of spending about $1 million on shopping at stores like Chanel and Gucci, and another $1 million on luxury travel.

Senate passes bill legalizing drunk driving on private property

Driving under the influence of alcohol can result in drunk driving charges. If you are convicted of a DUI, you may lose your license, as well as face jail time, probation and fines. However, according to a bill recently passed in the Virginia Senate, you may be legally allowed to drive while intoxicated on your own property.

Sexting may no longer be a felony charge for Virginia juveniles

According to Virginia law, anyone who sends or receives sexually explicit photos or videos of a minor may be charged with a felony. As the law currently stands, even teenagers who willingly send and receive "sexts" from other teenagers, could be charged with dissemination and possession of child pornography. Currently, in cases involving "sexting" amongst minors, prosecutors only have two options: do nothing or bring felony charges against a minor, who will be permanently labeled as a felony sex offender if convicted.
